YUMMILICIOUS CHICKEN WITH BROWN
SUGAR & LEMON
2-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaf
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp. lemon peel, divided
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.
Place chicken in a 9 x 13" casserole dish and squeeze the juice of one
lemon over top of each piece of chicken. Sprinkle chicken lightly with
thyme. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Mix together flour,
paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Pour flour
mixture into a large resealable bag and add chicken pieces; shake well to
coat chicken. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, brown
chicken in canola oil for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Rinse
casserole dish and spray with nonstick spray. Pour in chicken broth
and 1/2 tsp. lemon peel. Add browned chicken to the casserole dish.
Mix brown sugar with 1 tsp. lemon peel and sprinkle over chicken. Bake
for 35-40 minutes.
You can use leftover broth with juices to
drizzle over rice. Serve with fresh steamed asparagus.
